Anyone know of a program I can use to split up the tracks on a master recording? I just recently switched to a Mac and cdwave doesn't work. Thanks in advance

I use Sound Studio from felttip.com - it has a 14 non-consecutive day trial period and is very easy to drop tracks in and then split by markers, like CD-Wave. They're not cut on sector boundaries like CD-Wave does, but xACT (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21952) will allow you to fix SBEs while encoding to FLAC at the same time on the "fix SBE" tab. Actually, you might want to check your Applications folder, as Sound Studio was bundled with new Macs for a while.

Another program folks use is Audacity (audacity.sourceforge.net) - it's free and cross-platform so it might be a good solution, but I've never used it.

Hope this helps!

or if you have an intel based mac you might be able to use the following app that allows you to run windows apps on OSX
so then you should be able to run cdwav
but you must have an intel based mac

You can always split tracks with shntool, provided you're willing to identify the end-points of the tracks in a separate step rather than on-the-fly. This tutorial is a little dated, but still helpful. xACT incorporates shntool, to there's no need to resort to the command line unless you're into that sort of thing.

Audacity can be set to cut only on sector boundaries, and can also save directly to FLAC if you want. Thus it can replace BOTH of the other tools that greenone mentioned. Think of it as the Firefox of audio tools. :)

Aside, the ability to fix SBEs is a feature of the standard FLAC encoder, not something specific to xACT.
